The feeling of being stuck inside and not being able to see your partner or go on fun dates is a strange feeling to all of us. There are lots of ways, however, to keep the romance alive over the phone at a time like this. We have come up with seven ways you can have a great virtual date with your other half over a video call.
ENJOY SOME COCKTAILS
Just because you can’t take your significant other to a bar doesn’t mean you can’t have a couple of drinks together. Maybe there was a cocktail making class you fancied attending together before lockdown? It doesn’t need to wait. A quick search online or browsing a cocktail book will give you plenty of recipes to try. Set up your phone or laptop somewhere you can see each other and create cocktails together. This date idea also works well with coffee, hot chocolate, and any beverage you would prefer.
Enjoy a delicious meal together, whether you are cooking together via Facetime or ordering in. Treat your date to the night off by ordering a takeaway to their door. You can even save money on your dinner date by using Domino’s vouchers. There are plenty of Domino’s vouchers to choose from, so you can choose their favourite pizza and sides and surprise them.
PLAY VIDEO GAMES
Get addicted to a video game together! From Animal Crossing to Call of Duty, whatever you enjoy, have fun with it while video calling or chatting via your consoles. Grab some snacks and spend the day playing as if you were together in person.
PLAY OLD SCHOOL GAMES
If video gaming with consoles is not your thing, traditional games can be found online. Chess, Cluedo and Scrabble are just a few games you will be able to play together on the internet.
HAVE A MOVIE MARATHON
You can’t go wrong with a movie marathon when you are stuck inside feeling like you have nothing to do. Pick a few of your favourite movies, and remember to include a couple you haven’t yet seen so you can decide if you like them together. Binge-watching a new TV series or re-watching a series also works well as a way to spend some virtual time together.
DO A PUB QUIZ
Make up some quiz questions for each other or get involved with a pub that is hosting a quiz online. There are several companies offering quizzes that you can join in with, bringing your favourite pub quiz evenings right to your home.
